Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Another ColourQ challenge is upon us….check out this awesome palette from Arielle:


I have been impatiently awaiting a time that I could ink up a cute little Halloween set I got at the end of last year, and this seemed like a good time!


I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of her with Copics.  The cute little sentiment is a gift from my friend Martha!!  I love it!  And can you see the little stars surrounding her?


They were stamped in Versamark, then heat embossed with Heat & Stick powder, then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and reheated!!  Cute!  It also uses the RetroSketches sketch 25 from this week:

I so hope you can play along with this fun challenge, and make sure you fly on over to the ColourQ blog to see what how the other designers interpreted these colors!  FUN stuff!

Cassidy loves to help fill the bird feeders:

And while we were playing on the patio the other day, I managed to snap this unusual shot:


Unusual for ME, at least…these little hummers are fast!

I love what you did with these colors and the sketch LeAnne. I like the way you paper pieced the little witch.

I also enjoyed the pics of Cassidy. My son (much older than her) has recently doscovered bird watching and set up a few feeders in our yard. We also added a hummingbird feeder but haven't seen any yet. I'll have to share these pics with him!!

Such a spooky sweet witch, love that amazing rick rack! I have never been able to snap a shot of a Hummingbird--amazing!

Linda said...

Your pictures are wonderful. I need Cassidy here. The squirrels empties the feeder faster that the birds. I could fill it every other day. I love the humming bird picture.
Your card is soooo cute. The is the cutest witch.

So so cute, LeAnne! Love that little witch! The stars you did are so awesome, great sparkle! I bet I know a cute little pumpkin who might be receiving this card! :) Hope you have a great day my friend! :)

LeAnne, this works so beautifully. I LOVE this image. I love the little sparkly stars and that you mixed the copic coloring with the paper piecing. I love the bold, graphic feel of the card.
Love your hummer, too!
